As creatives, we get paid (or dream of getting paid) for our work, opinions and talents. As great of a victory that win may seem, being paid for our work doesn’t necessarily mean it is OUR work.
We all have clients with ideals, dreams and visions that need be brought to life. Unless we’re intertwined with the client and their goal, the creation of said work will not be a cathartic release. As creatives need to continuously move beyond our comfort zones to continually be successful and original in prose. So in order for us to not lose our collective minds, or find ourselves burnt out, and seemingly depleted of the gumption necessary to innovate, we have to allow ourselves the momentary lapses of liberation. Pure freedom of intention. Permission to create.
Afford yourself an uninhibited hour or afternoon, where you spend time with one facet of your craft and create with no intended direction. Allow yourself to make without expectation. Embrace and make many mistakes, channel your frustrations, kick a can off of a stool, and push the limits of your comfort.
Give yourself permission to create.
